BRIEF

Policy Summary

Professional Research or Teaching Leave (PRT)
To promote the continuing professional growth and competence of senior administrative professional (job titles identified as "professional" in the Human Resources Information System [HRIS]) and scientific staff members, the Laboratory Director may grant professional research or teaching leave (PRT Leave) to a limited number of employees. Approval and recommendation from the division director must be obtained before submitting the request to the Laboratory Director. Approval for such leave will be based on evidence that Berkeley Lab will benefit from the proposed work and that the candidate will continue employment at the Laboratory or another DOE-funded employer for a reasonable period following the leave. The leave may be spent at appropriate institutions either within or outside the United States.

Professional Renewal Leave (PR)
The Laboratory Director may grant professional renewal leave to a limited number of Laboratory managers or scientific personnel who have made outstanding contributions in furtherance of Laboratory objectives. The purpose of professional renewal leave is to provide these individuals an opportunity to attach themselves to external organizations and/or programs for the purpose of professional revitalization and development. These temporary external assignments will be approved based on technical and programmatic relevance, to ensure mutual benefit to both the Laboratory and the employee.
